Napoleon, Andrea, and their children explain why they love Hopewell Music. Like many families at Hopewell, this family has multiple members involved in our programs.
One of our young Hopewell Music Students, Jeffrey, performs on the piano at one of our community recitals. We host recitals throughout the year so our students can practice playing in front of an audience.
When you donate to Hopewell Music, you support fair access to music education for 100+ people every semester in our North Minneapolis community. Due to the legacy of redlining and various forms of inequity, North Minneapolis schools have been forced to minimize or eliminate music programs and many families in our area cannot afford the higher lesson rates in more affluent nearby neighborhoods like Northeast Minneapolis and Golden Valley. Hopewell provides access to the life changing benefits of music in right in North Minneapolis at a price that is realistic for our community members. Your donation makes it possible for North Minneapolis students to study music at the Northside's only comprehensive music school.
"Being part of a strong group of players helps me to be a better player."
- Hopewell Music Student
Studies prove that music-making students across the socio-economic spectrum perform better in school than students who have no musical involvement. Music has the added benefits of instilling values such as resilience, patience, and cooperation. The skills and life lessons students learn through music empower them in other areas of their lives. Here are some examples of how you help North Minneapolis students access the rewards of an education in music when you donate to Hopewell Music:
That's why we need your support to ensure that current and future students of Hopewell Music have access to the full power of music. You'll be amazed at how much good your donation will do for North Minneapolis students at Hopewell Music.
